Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh

It's been a great week so far at CampNaNoWriMo! After indulging in too many hotdogs and sunbathing by the lake, I actually got some great word counts in-between camp activities. Since Wednesdays, I've clocked in 5,403 words. Yay!

For those familiar with NaNoWriMo, I did not start my word counts with what I already had going into camp... I started my count at 0, starting the day CampNaNoWriMo began on Aug. 1st. So while I may not win overall, I should have book 3 finished well before Aug. 31st.

So get ready faithful readers, I'll have PARADIGM out sometime by the end of this month (here's hoping) or early September! And I've already alerted my proofreader/editor, will soon contact my beta's, and I'll soon be getting ready to work on the cover. Lots of stuff going on this month.

And sadly, I haven't ready any good books lately, not because what I've read isn't any good, but because I haven't had the opportunity to read lately...yeah, I know! I still have tons in my TBR pile and hopefully I'll need to take a break so I can get back to reading!

As for TV, I am anxiously awaiting the new seasons of shows that will be starting up soon, so it's basically re-runs right now. I am however watching GREEK (ABC Family) on Netflix as I write (I tend to watch shows I never watched while writing, since I can't do it to music) and I'm loving it! Probably cuz I was Greek in college and am now busy working on building up our alumnae association (yes, another time suck)... 

How did the rest of my ROW80ers and fellow campers fare this week?

  2. I find it amazing that you can write with the a show running in the background and actually pay attention. I put on music, but there's a point I reach when I hear nothing at all, other than the words in my head as they flow out my fingers.

    I wish you the best with your book. :)

    1. Oh yeah, it's music I can't write to. I start singing, which turns to dancin', so having tv shows in the background works :) Sometimes I have to rewatch the episode because I've focused on my writing, I missed the show!

  3. 7,341 over here! Yay! I have a lot further to go, though. Jealous of you! You're such a fast writer. If you want me to beta again, can you send me the newest version of parallel?

  4. Sounds like you've had a great week (and a great time at camp)!! Well done. I am behind on Nano count, but have kept up with almost everything else, so am still pretty happy. Guess I'll need a few make up days lol. I, too, am amazed that you can write with tv on. I would never get anything done :D Have a good week!!

    1. I had such a great start, then I flopped over the weekend. I'm just glad I went over my word counts Wed-Fri, so I had some wiggle room. I'm finally caught up! Good Luck this week!!
